The actual 4G services will start very soon in these places:

Birmingham, Bradford, Brighton, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Guildford, Leeds, Leicester, London, Manchester, Merseyside, Newbury, Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham, Paisley, Sheffield, Slough, St. Albans, York

At800, the people tasked with restoring Freeview to anyone who finds they have problems, have today launched a campaign to reach those people in the UK who are "offline" with a novel campaign to send a "tweet" by postcard for free.

First you have to follow @at800tv on Twitter. Click on the link and then click the "Follow" button.

If you know someone who lives in the places listed above, tweet a message for them using the #at800postbox hash tag (that means put #at800postbox in your twitter message).

At800 will then send you a direct message on Twitter to get the details of the recipients name and address, and that you agree to the terms and conditions.

You find direct messages on Twitter this way:

For the record... This being a site about TV, I am concerned about the 800MHz services and their effect on Freeview. It a moot point about when network X starts a service in Y place.

What is a "tweet".
Is it something to do with telephones or with TV?
I suspect 40% of the population don't know (or care).

Jeanette ,
I am in ST7, and on a hill, in a bungalow.Signal has just returned after about 12 hours.We are in a weak area for Wrekin transmissions and this happens occasionally due to atmospherics or sunspots, the inversion or the equinox. The two storey houses with higher aerials are usually ok.
